In My Mailbox #169

I'm happy about this week. My health still sucks, but my abscess is getting better. Probably. And oh, I read so many amazing books this week. I'm so happy about that. I also got some great mail. <3 Though still waiting on a lot, hah. Next week will be even more awesome, I think :) But oh. Next week. Going to the hospital on Thursday, and back midnight Friday. It will be a kind of torture. Sob. I don't want to, but thing with having Morbus Crohn is that I have to once a year. Sigh. Just hoping it won't be too painful. Fingers crossed. Plus side, bringing my laptop so that I get to see the new The 100 episode on Thursday there :) Which I loved this week. Though it broke my heart. Damn Clarke. Sigh. But so excited for the next episode. <3 Blog posts for this week. I re-read the amazing This is Not a Test. <3 So damn good. Then I read Please Remain Calm :D Which I loved. I posted another Cress Tuesday. <3 I'm waiting on The Stars Never Rise. Then I read the amazing All the Rage. <3 Damn. It was good. I shared the cover for The Last Ever After. <3 Which is gorgeous. And then I read The Fire Sermon. Which I had a lot of issues with. Sigh. I just want to thank you all for always commenting on my blog posts. <3 You guys are the sweetest. And I try my best to comment on a lot of blogs, which I do every day, but I'm still behind on some of you that comment on my blog. And I'm so sorry. I just haven't had the energy to catch up yet :\ But hoping I will be able to soon. Fingers crossed. I do adore you all :) What did you get this week?

  11. Aw, Carina :( That sucks that you're having to go through all that. Sending positive thoughts your way! I hope you are able to distract yourself with some good reading and tv. Courtney Summers - you know, I have never read her books before despite all the amazing things that I always hear! I'm clearly missing out! Glad to hear you loved her latest :)
